Former Takarazuka Revue star and popular stage actress Yuki Amami, 45, has dropped out of her latest theatrical run after suffering myocardial infarction, media reported Thursday.
Amami, who had been starring in "L'honneur de Napoleon" at the Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre, complained of feeling sluggish and weak on Monday night, her management said. Sports Nippon reported that she was taken to hospital where doctors said she had suffered a mild heart attack. Amami was admitted immediately and ordered to take 7-10 days of bed rest.
Amami was scheduled to appear until May 12. The Wednesday and Thursday performances of the play were canceled. Amami's role is to be taken over by Rie Miyazawa for the rest of the performances.© Japan Today
